Generic Press TP Added Automatically

With Prepress 7, when you add an output device, the Generic Press task is automatically added to your flow.

How It Works

Simple! When you build a flow, you no longer have to add the Generic Press task yourself. Since all output flows (plate, film, proofing) must end with a Generic Press task, the system automatically adds one when ever you drag in an output task. To see it in action, do the following.

1. Build a normal flow and add an output device.
An output device may be a generic TIFF device, a platesetter/ filmsetter, or a proofer.

2. Notice there’s a Generic Press task placed at the end of the flow.

Why is this Important?
This simply saves you a step when you build your plans. Because Prepress 7 now supports just one press task, the Generic Press TP, it makes it easy for the system to figure out how to end each flow.
